Successes in health and fitness may look different for each person out there. We hope hearing about what others are going through, persevering with many of the same ups and downs, will be encouraging and motivating to stay positive.

Being in constant pain can leave you second guessing every movement you make and be just as challenging mentally as it is physically. Mike has worked very hard to break the pain cycle that he found himself in with various injuries and joint pain. We've continued to move forward focusing on progress, not perfection. His hard work has been a catalyst to feeling better each week! Here is a bit more about his story..... 

"I initially came to Robert/PT in the D in February of 2022. I have been working out most of my life and consider myself pretty self-motivated but as I was entering my mid 40s, I found myself spinning my wheels with different injuries and limitations with some of my joints. I would get into a good groove and then would somehow hurt my back sitting on the floor playing kitchen with my daughter or playing catch with my son and be laid up on the couch for 3 weeks, rinse and repeat. I had let my diet get a little bit out of control and coming out of the pandemic I decided to finally make some changes and really start taking my diet and exercise seriously. I lost about 40 lbs and was feeling pretty good until my body started breaking down again - back, knees, elbows, you name it. I couldn't do many of the exercises that I was used to doing in the gym so I decided to hit Google to look for an area trainer to consult with. I found Robert and I am very happy that I did! Robert immediately helped me to overhaul some issues with my form. He identified limitations with my movements and worked with me on exercises to unlock some of those problematic areas. It has been a journey but Robert has stood with me and coached me through everything, not only finding ways to still exercise and weight train around my ailments but also helping me with new stretches and foam rolls, etc to help alleviate discomfort. It has been a very stressful year complete with physical therapy stints, doctor visits, cortisone and PRP injections, an ongoing full home remodel without moving out, and my family and I even wound up getting stuck in Maui during the recent tragic wildfires. But we have kept going strong through it all, even if we have had to do our weekly training session in the park a couple of times due to construction!  I have lost an additional 25 lbs or so while adding muscle since signing on with PT in the D, and at 46 I am probably in the best shape I have been in since college. It truly has been a lifestyle change that is now entrenched, and I could not have done it without Robert and PT in the D's help."
